Read an Excerpt

There is a girl who goes between the worlds.

She is grey-eyed and pale of skin, or so the story goes, and her hair is a coal-black waterfall with half-seen hints of red. She wears about her brow a circlet of burnished metal, a dark crown that holds her hair in place and sometimes puts shadows in her eyes. Her name is Sharra; she knows the gates.

The beginning of her story is lost to us, with the memory of the world from which she sprang. The end? The end is not yet, and when it comes we shall not know it.

We have only the middle, or rather a piece of that middle, the smallest part of the legend, a mere fragment of the quest. A small tale within the greater, of one world where Sharra paused, and of the lonely singer Laren Dorr and how they briefly touched.

Anyone who has read anything else by GRRM knows that “succinct” is not a word that would ever be used to describe him. In fact, I think the very thought of forcing one of his ideas into a short story is a big injustice to readers, although this one was not bad. The story is fine, a little abstract yet still easy to comprehend, but you know he could do so much more with this in a 1,000-page behemoth of a hardback. I would classify this story as an average story with an above average ending, the little twist at the end bumped this up a few points in my opinion; it is unfortunate that we don’t get to experience any of the masterful character development that is this author’s forte’.

I thought it was a pretty good read. There's a well written sense of amiguity to it that makes it all the more entertaining.
